I think the most frequently asked hair related question is "Should I get bangs?". Well I have bangs. I've had bangs forever. I haven't not had bangs for the last 10 years.

That was a little frightening. See my straw hair? Worst idea ever. I might have looked cute for like.. A day. I pretended to blame my mother for not letting me bleach it totally platinum (Thanks Mom!) Which would have been an even worse idea. But I think the fact of the matter is I am not beautifully milky toned like my dear friend Nic. Nor am I a totally tan beach babe (I don't have any friends like that). 

Here I am now with my red hair and straight across bangs. So what's my problem? I can't decide if I want to keep my straight across, make my forehead sweaty, always flip on the side bangs. Or if I want to let them grow out a bit (they've probably gone out enough now) and get some angled bangs.. What I like to call a swoop. I am a bang person. I'd love to be like Anna and just be able to not have bangs. She is rockin' some Alexa Chung inspired hair right now. You should really go check out her blog and see. So what do I do? Currently I'm pretending I don't have this problem by hiding them. Under head bangs, with bobby pins, or recently.. in pin curls.

So what do you think? Grow them out? Chop them straight again? Angle them?

Today is a very special day for a very special person but I'll be back with that post tomorrow!
